TRAFFICKING TRENDS TO WATCH OUT FOR IN LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN

Mexico, Brazil and Colombia see the highest number of wildlife trafficking instances in aviation according to the data, often to supply countries less commonly associated with illegal wildlife trade, including the Netherlands, Germany and the US.  The report is said to be the most comprehensive assessment of wildlife trafficking by air in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region to date.
